Your soon need to be seen by a physician.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for consulting us.
You have tried common remedies to treat heartburn. Remember, Your boy is having pain & not just burning.
There could be many causes for that e.g. Gastric or peptic ulcer, perforation, any problem with pancreas, oesophagus or even heart. A hiatus hernia may cause pain in that area. He needs medical review.
Please take him to an ER for complete medical help which can only be given once a diagnosis is made after full history, clinical examination & necessary investigations.
Hope I have given you the basic clues.
Wish you good health.
Take care.
